Guide to Vintage Furniture Shops in North Miami: Elite Artifacts
When it comes to beautiful things, it's better to look and not touch than to not look at all, right? That's the thinking behind this guide to the host of classy vintage furniture shops in North Miami known in some circles as "20th Century Row." Previously, we brought you Part I of our North Miami Vintage Guide: the "affordable finds" at the shops near Biscayne on 123rd Street.
Browsing this shop, admittedly our favorite, is akin to stumbling into the joint prop storeroom for A Clockwork Orange and Pee Wee's Big Adventure. That's not to marginalize the artistic importance of the pieces, but rather to give an idea of just how "artistic" these antiques are. Many pieces are fantastically surreal, yet functional. Others, like a giant black foot, appear less functional but certainly fascinating. Owner Tina Hunsinger pointed out some of her favorite items, including an 11-foot goatskin table by German-born, French-educated designer Karl Springer, recently reduced to $4,600. Also represented are design company Rougier and Overtown artist Purvis Young.
